New Music Arriving From Rockers King Kobra, Final Breath and The O'Reillys & The Paddyhats

The legendary eighties rock band King Kobra, led by the great drummer Carmine Appice, released a trio of albums in the eighties that have become instant cult classics. After dissolving the band in 1989, Appice revived King Kobra back in 2010 and released two more studio albums. While their studio work never lived up to the expectations of fans, their live shows rivaled some of the best hard rock bands of that era. To celebrate the legacy of King Kobra, Metalville Records released a new live album titled "Sweden Rock Live" this past summer.

The new 13-track release mixes together classic songs from the early days of King Kobra, including "Ready To Strike" and "Shadow Rider" with newer King Kobra releases. Songs like "Tear Down The Walls" and "Knock'em Dead" featured the current line-up of the band on their last couple studio albums as they inject some extra energy into the live versions of these songs. The set also includes an electrifying bass solo from Johnny Rod, who also leads them in a quick version of W.A.S.P.'s "Wild Child." The cover songs continue with Deep Purple's "Highway Star" and Black Sabbath's "Heaven And Hell," as a tribute to the late, great Ronnie James Dio. The show finishes up with a thunderous drum solo by Carmine Appice and the chugging guitar riffs of "Turn Up The Good."

Arriving October 19th is the latest album from the German metal band, Final Breath. Their new release titled "Of Death And Sin" features ten, face-melting anthems of death metal that will certainly wake-up your sense of hearing. They begin with the quick, two-minute blast of "Babylon C.E.," as you are in for one wild ride. They continue with the neck-breaking speed of "Yearning For Next Murder" and the chugging guitar riffs of "Born Against" as Final Breath continue to flex their death metal music muscle. They deliver a hardcore, progressive metal sound with the six-minute "Immemorial Disease," then flip on the speed once more for the aggressive attack of "Illega-lie-sating." Final Breath close out their new album with the screams of "Chaos Unity" and the shear speed and power of "Annihilation."

With a name like The O'Reillys and the Paddyhats, you would think you were in for some good Irish drinking songs, and you would be right. The only thing is, don't plan on lying back and let the drinking to the talking, instead the band add and extra jolt of energy to their music in order for you to get off your "arse" and dance. Their new 13-song set titled "Green Blood," begins with the title song that mixes in a old-fashion Celtic vibe with a hard rock assault to get your adrenaline pumping. The album continues with the chugging rhythm of "Another Town Another Girl" and the swift pace of the sing-along chorus of "Swing Your Hammer." They keep the fun going with the high-powered Irish anthem "Boys On The Green," before slowing down for a moment with the acoustic blues of "Roasie Lou." The O'Reillys and the Paddyhats finish up their new album with the intense Celtic "Rockstar" and the final sing-along of "Yesterday's Rebel."
